    Home-Based Care: What Does the Future Hold?

    One hundred years ago, it was common for doctors to visit patients at home. Over time, house calls and other forms of home-based care became less popular as patients increasingly received care in hospitals and other institutional settings. While most care now takes place in medical facilities, in recent years there has been a resurgence in home-based care as a convenient and cost-effective way to provide treatment for patients.

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) made critical investments to make health insurance more affordable for people seeking coverage outside the workplace. However, without swift Congressional action, this legacy could be lost. Congress must renew the temporary subsidies that lowered health care costs and made Marketplace coverage more accessible for millions of Americans

    Reimagining Youth Behavioral Health Needs with Empowerment Counseling Services

    Child and adolescent mental health has continued to worsen throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. For youth and their families, navigating mental health challenges, access to care and the cost of receiving care can be prohibitive factors.
